I am so excited to share my latest DIY project with you all! It’s super easy, cheap and cute for fall. Fabric pumpkins are all the rage this season. I’m sharing this easy DIY Sweater Pumpkin I made for $5!
You will need:
– A small pumpkin (I used a small faux one I got in the dollar bin).
– An old sweater (I used one I had in my closet that I didn’t wear anymore but you can also go to Goodwill and get one. The tighter the cableknit or weave, the better.)
1.) Start by taking your pumpkin and inserting it through the bottom of your sweater, feeding through one of the sleeves until the tip of the stem is sitting right at the ribbing of your sleeve.
2.) Twist the sleeve tightly around the stem of your pumpkin. Take your twine and start wrapping around the covered stem, from bottom to top. Then go back down and work your way back up again. Cut the twine and then hold in place with either a hot glue gun or some Modge Podge.
3.) Next cut the sweater at the bottom of the pumpkin. You can tape to hold to the pumpkin or throw a couple of stitches in to hold it together but this part is not going to show.
4.) Finish it off by tying a bow with a ribbon around the base of the stem.
Super cute right? These are adorable on some shelves, in a little corner or lining your stairs.
